"Learning to Live Together": Training Early Childhood Educators to Promote Socio-Emotional Competence of Toddlers and Pre-School Children
Rosenthal, Miriam K.; Gatt, Lihi
European Early Childhood Education Research Journal, v18 n3 p223-240 Sep 2010
This paper describes a training program--"Learning to Live Together"--for early childhood educators working with toddlers and preschoolers in daycare or nursery schools. The training aims to provide educators with (a) research-based "knowledge" on socio-emotional development, and on social "learning opportunities" offered by daily social and emotional events in the group setting; (b) specific "intervention skills" that support socio-emotional development; (c) The program further explores and clarifies the overt and covert "attitudes and beliefs" educators may hold concerning children's socio-emotional development, and concerning their own role in promoting this development. The training program consists of 12 workshop meetings guided by an early childhood expert. These are followed by four small-group consultation meetings that offer video-observation of challenging children. The program is divided into four units: (1) understanding young children's group experience; (2) toddlers learn empathy; (3) toddlers learn to play together; (4): toddlers learn to resolve conflicts.
